This couple is tied with 4 a piece in qually, surprisingly it's Heikki who pushes ahead by 0.163 seconds! That's a bigger spread than half the grid! Lewis Hamilton has had problems in the season opener, Monaco and his home G.P. which has hurt his average quite a bit.
On the contrary, during the race Hamilton pulls a confortable gap of 0.317 seconds and leads 5-3 in fastest laps. It's fair to mention that Kovalainen did have incidents in the first two G.P.s and then a mechanical problem in Spain which helps Lewis' lead.
